If you distinguish between PostgreSQL 7 and PostgreSQL 8 then you have a 
grave misunderstanding about the PostgreSQL version numbering.  The 
major version numbers go ... 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, ...  The change 
from 7 to 8 is purely arbitrary.  So to make sense you should create 
users postgre72, postgre73, postgre74, postgre80, etc., otherwise it's 
just random.
